7:49 am
fragmented markets because that creates unhappiness. >> you have two icons, apple that's thriving nonstop and others that are going into bankruptcy like hostess. will there be twinkies on the shelves in another year? >> absolutely. someone else is going to buy the brand and continue making twinkies and all the other products, and they will be available, but made by someone else. >> will they be made by workers getting enough money to take care of their families or part time, low pay and no benefits, the trend we're seeing. thank you for sharing your thoughts with us this morning. >> thanks again. new game rules for life. this week's jefferson award winner. we talked to a coach whose rugby players thrive on and off the field. a fascinating story. discovering ,,,,,,,,
